Set-RetentionPolicy

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-11-19

Use the Set-RetentionPolicy cmdlet to change the properties of an existing retention policy.


set-RetentionPolicy -Identity <MailboxPolicyIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-Name <String>] [-RetentionId <Guid>] [-RetentionPolicyTagLinks <RetentionPolicyTagIdParameter[]>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Messaging records management" entry in the Messaging Policy and Compliance Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxPolicyIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the name, distinguished name (DN), or GUID of the retention policy.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Force switch overrides the confirmation prompt displayed by the cmdlet when you use the RetentionId parameter.

Name

Optional

System.String

The Name parameter specifies a unique name for the retention policy.

RetentionId

Optional

System.Guid

The RetentionId parameter specifies the identity of the retention policy to make sure mailboxes moved between two Exchange organizations continue to have the same retention policy applied to them. For example, in a cross-forest deployment or in a cross-premises deployment, when a mailbox is moved from an on-premises Exchange server to the cloud, or a cloud mailbox is moved to an on-premises Exchange server, this parameter is used to make sure the same retention policy is applied to the mailbox.

importantImportant:
It's not normally required to specify or modify the RetentionId parameter for a retention tag. The parameter is populated automatically when importing retention tags using the Import-RetentionTags.ps1 script.

RetentionPolicyTagLinks

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.RetentionPolicyTagIdParameter[]

The RetentionPolicyTagLinks parameter specifies the identity of retention policy tags to associate with the retention policy. Mailboxes that get a retention policy applied have retention tags linked with that retention policy.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.

To see the input types that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Input Type field for a cmdlet is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t accept input data.

To see the return types, which are also known as output types, that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Output Type field is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t return data.

This example modifies the policy MyPolicy to link the retention policy tag MyRetentionPolicyTag with it.

Set-RetentionPolicy "MyPolicy" -RetentionPolicyTagLinks "MyRetentionPolicyTag"
noteNote:
The Identity parameter is a positional parameter. Positional parameters can be used without the label (Identity). For more information about positional parameters, see Parameters.
